About Renee

We are a family of 4 and this is our second mountain vacation rental. We love spending time in the mountains and sharing our spaces with others. The bridge in the picture leads to our favorite family walk in Fairplay. We are both in customer service (Greg works in cable and Renee is a realtor) and like providing a great experience for our mountain guests.

Renee purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Renee chose South Central

We stumbled across this cabin one day on our way through town. It looked interesting from the outside, but we fell in love with it when we walked in. The previous owners updated the cabin making it beautiful, comfortable, and cozy. We were so sad to leave that we decided to buy it right then.

What makes this cabin unique

We really like the craftsmanship of the log cabin. It was built in 1932 and updated in a way that makes it very functional, but still feels original. Reclaimed wood was used where the ceilings were replaced, the ceiling was opened up to the roof line, and there is a jotul wood stove in the living room that is beautiful and very warm. We also liked that the cabin is in town and walkable to shops and restaurants and across the street from the coffee shop.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time and we had lots of fun. One of our favorite parts was the cabin. It was the best place we have ever stayed in. There was everything we needed and it was decorated nicely. The kids especially loved the loft. The saddest part was leaving! Thank you!

Wonderful Getaway Cottage in Downtown Fairplay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this cozy little cottage! Clean, the kitchen and linen closet were stocked with everything you could need. The owner was very easy to communicate with over email and quick to respond. Loved that the coffee shop was so close - wonderful coffee and breakfast sandwiches/burritos. Quiet neighborhood within walking distance to all the shops and the lake. Loved this place and may have to come back for another visit soon!

Cute place, but not very clean, or secure (back door would not latch closed or lock).

  • 2 of 5

The place needs a really good cleaning. The sheets were torn and bedding was worn, there was old milk and fish in the fridge, and pills in the kitchen sink when we arrived. Laundry was also left in the dryer. The location was great, and the owner responds to email quickly. I hope these issues are addressed for the next guest.

Owner's Response: It has taken me a long time to respond to this review as I was so shocked to read it. Hopefully, future guests will read the other reviews and know this review does not accurately portray the cabin. Unfortunately, the back door of the cabin was not latching property and that has been remedied. We had recently done a heavy duty clean and our cleaning angel cleans thoroughly between each stay. I am very particular about having a clean and welcoming place for people to stay. If I had known the conditions were not satisfactory to this guest at the beginning of the stay, I would have sent someone over right away to take care of things. My family loves sharing our home with our guests and our hope is that when people stay at the cabin, it leads to an even better vacation.

Romantic Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The space was perfect for my boyfriend and I to spend a romantic and quiet weekend away! Nice linens, cozy flannel sheets and bedding. Kitchen had everything we needed for basic snacks and meals. Very close to downtown Breckenridge, but far enough out to feel tucked into the woods, very quiet at night. Renee was great about replies and communication. We also accidentally locked ourself out at one point, and the owner contacted her cleaning person to unlock it for us right away.

The neighbors were friendly as well - our car got stuck in the snow twice (I recommend a car that can tackle snow if staying here), and two different neighbors helped push our car out on different occasions. I would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a quiet weekend away, but with tons of opportunity for adventure!
